I could go on for pages but in a nutshell, this place is outstanding in every category. My wife and I fly fish all over for trout....this was our first saltwater experience. A couple who owns a fly shop in Arizona recommended Turneffe Flats, but after some additional research we decided to come here. What a great decision. My wife and I also wanted to snorkel, and also come back to the lodge for lunch (instead of eating on the boat). TIR was totally flexible to whatever we wanted to do while my questions to the Turneff Flats booking agent indicated a lack of flexibility if you purchased the fishing package. Everybody who was fishing caught Permit, Bonefish and Tarpon and a couple of guys got all three in one day (Grand Slam). The day starts with a pot of coffee delivered to your cabana and placed just outside the door (its there when you wake up and still hot). The entire staff from the managers, to kitchen, to guides all act like you are the only client they have had for the entire year. The owners recently hired Nick and Vanda as resort managers and they are first class fun to be around, 100% professional and respectful, and they will do ANYTHING to make your stay 5 Star. The cabanas and rooms are mahogany and not only clean as a whistle, but cleaned every day. You will meet life long friends while there. The family dining arrangement allows you to meet everybody and share stories. I did not meet one person who did not feel the same way about this resort as we did. DIVERS: All of the divers thought the dives were phenomenal and there were 3 dives a day! You may contact me at any time if you have some specific questions. The negatives? I think the worst part was having to leave! As Arnold says "I'll be back!"
